What You Can Expect
Start the day after hotel pick-up with Stanley Park. Stanley Park is a 1000-acre playground with stunning city views, mountain backdrops, and the salty smell of the Pacific Ocean. See why it was named the top park in the entire world and continues to rank as one of the best parks in the world. In Gastown, see Maple Tree Square, Vancouver’s oldest architecture, and the world famous steam powered clock.
Next up, Chinatown is known for great restaurants, shopping, and interesting architecture (like the world’s thinnest building), all for your senses to feast upon.
After that is is on to Granville Island, a tiny peninsula that is a hotbed for good food and great art. Spend time browsing artisan workshops or get some great food and even better views waterside at the Granville Island Public Market.
Then, drive over a true Vancouver landmark, the Lion’s Gate Bridge, a 5,890-foot (1,823-meter) bridge that offers unparalleled views of Vancouver Harbor, English Bay, and beyond.
Once across the Bridge and in the North Shore, the tour continues on a short drive up the mountain to the Capilano Fish Hatchery. Here you will learn about the life cycle of salmon and depending on the season (July-August), watch them as they leap their way upriver.
Next, head over to the Capilano Suspension Bridge, known as a world-famous foot bridge, to walk among the towering trees of the surrounding temperate rainforest and learn the traditions of the Coast Salish indigenous people. Then cross the infamous 446-foot (136-meter) bridge to the other side of the river to a climb into the canopy and walk through the Treetops Adventure walkway high above the canyon and river below.
For those seeking a more thrilling experience, try the Cliffwalk, the newest attraction at the Capilano Suspension Bridge. This adrenaline-pumping journey travels through the rainforest on a series of suspended walkways built out from the granite cliff face to give the group access to unexplored territories of the park.
